[ubuntu] GTX 660M nvidia Driver

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello guys. Hopefully someone knows a bit about the nvidia drivers. I am trying to install the drivers on a Lenovo Y580 that has a GTX 660M, running 12.04 64 bit. Everything I have tried results in the nvidia settings saying that "you do not appear to be using the nvidia x driver." I have downloaded the driver directly from nvidia and installed it, and I have done the following also. Code: sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current I have ran the Code: nvidia-xconfig but that does absolutely nothing (Hardware)
